 Richard Kriesche

«I arrived at a TV panel discussion wearing a black blindfold. I asked them to keep moving the camera in on my face until only my black blindfold was visible on the TV screens of Austria. My reality (I see nothing) became the viewers' media reality (they see nothing). I kept the blindfold on for the entire broadcast.»
